Welcome to Oakwood 



Here is a place "where loveliness keeps house/' 

.... where "true education" means more than the pursual of 
a certain course of study, 

.... where the Oakwood program of Christian education is 
focused both on Christian growth and academic excel- 
lence, 

.... where students from scores of states and foreign lands 
"enter to learn and depart to serve/' and 

.... where both teacher and student find a common bond of 
unity as "companions in learning and searching for 
truth." 

Look through these pages and get a view of Oakwood College. 
Behold its emphasis on the spiritual, its viable academic pro- 
gram, its student-centered activities, its beautiful campus, its 
modern physical plant, and all that go together to make Oak- 
wood a place "where loveliness keeps house." 



LOCATION 

Oakwood College is located five miles northwest of the heart 
of the city of Huntsville. Huntsville is a cosmopolitan city located 
in the north central portion of the state of Alabama and nestled in 
the beautiful Tennessee Valley at the foothills of the Appalachian 
Mountains. It has a population of 160,000. 

The College property consists of 980 acres at an elevation of 
1,100 feet above sea level. The grounds of the campus are appro- 
priately landscaped and afford a delightful setting for the College. 

Huntsville is served by the Continental Trailways and connec- 
tion with other bus lines can be made in practically all nearby cities. 
Huntsville is also served by Southern, Eastern, and United Airlines. 

Upon arrival at times other than the opening dates published 
in this Bulletin, students will find taxi service available. It is 
expected that all students will make full arrangements with the 
College before their arrival.

GENERAL INFORMATION. HISTORY. 
AND DEVELOPMENT 

Oakwood College is the outgrowth of the Oakwood Industrial 
School founded in 1896 by the General Conference of Seventh-day 
Adventists. After a number of years of successful operation the 
name was changed to Oakwood Manual Training School. In 1917, 
two years of college work were offered, and the school was known 
as Oakwood Junior College. In the spring of 1943, another forward 
step was taken by the institution when it was advanced to the 
status of a senior college. Since that time it has been known as 
Oakwood College. In 1964 Oakwood College became a member of 
the United Negro College Fund. 

The institution is owned and operated by the General Con- 
ference of Seventh-day Adventists as a college for Christian higher 
education. 

ACCREDITATION 

Oakwood College is accredited by the Southern Association of 
Colleges and Schools and is approved by the Seventh-day Adventist 
Board of Regents. 

OBJECTIVES 

Oakwood College builds its offerings around the philosophy 
that "true education means more than the pursual of a certain 
course of study. It means more than the preparation for the life 
that now is. It has to do with the whole being. ... It is the 
harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the 
spiritual powers. It prepares the student for the joy of service in 
this world, and for the higher joy of wider service in the world to 
come." — Education, p. 13. 

In harmony with this philosophy of education, the administra- 
tion and faculty of Oakwood College have defined its objectives as 
follows: 

Spiritual: 

The purpose of the spiritual and religious instruction at Oak- 
wood College is to reflect fully the image of Jesus Christ through 
emphasis on the development of character and talent, the nobility 
of ambition, the keenness of perception with sound judgment; so 
that the student is prepared to render unselfish service to God and 
man. 

Intellectual: 

Consonant with the divine plan of education, the College 
purposes to develop within its students certain attitudes and abilities 
conducive to independent and creative thinking; to further acquaint 
them with the basic facts and principles of the major fields of 



General Information 33 

knowledge, together with a more intensive concentration in one 
or more of these fields. The College seeks further to help the 
student to develop proficiency in the use of the English language; 
to encourage an unbiased attitude on controversial issues; and to 
motivate within the student a persistent and continuing intellectual 
curiosity. 

Cultural: 

As an integral part of the total development of the student, the 
College endeavors to develop in its youth desirable personalities, 
refined tastes, and correct usage of the social graces which will 
prepare them for participation in social and recreational activities, 
and to understand and respect persons of varied backgrounds and 
experiences. 

Personal Adjustment: 

The College seeks to help the student understand himself, to 
the end that he may make the maximum use of whatever powers 
he has, both for his own and for the social good. While the student 
must learn the subjects that are offered in the curriculum, he must 
also find out about himself and how he may best fit into the social 
order. 

Physical: 

The physical education program of the College attempts to 
give each student an intelligent understanding of the standards 
which govern the function and care of the body. It seeks also to 
establish in the student a consistency in the observance of habits 
and practices which engender maximum physical vitality and 
health. Emphasis is placed on the proper use of leisure time, either 
through some activity worthy of physical development or in some 
gymnastic enterprise given under supervision. 

Vocational: 

Oakwood College endeavors to teach its students the dignity of 
labor, to train them in practical work which will enable them to 
cope with life situations, to impart skill and knowledge in certain 
vocations best suited to the student's interests and aptitudes, and to 
offer professional and preprofessional courses which will aid the 
students in their choice of a vocation. 

VETERAN AND FOREIGN STUDENT TRAINING 

The Veterans Administration has approved the College for the 
training of veterans. A Certificate of Eligibility must be submitted 
to the Registrar's Office at the time of initial registration, in order 
that the certification of the veteran's enrollment may be made to 
the Veterans Administration. 

The College has also been approved by the United States Office 
of Immigration for the training of foreign students.

dents, and those interested in the advancement of Oakwood. At

STUDENT LIFE 

Orientation: To help new students of the College to make ade- 
quate personal adjustment to college life, an orientation program 
has been developed. During "Freshman Week" special tests are 
administered. Campus tours, opportunities to meet the faculty mem- 
bers, student leaders, and to receive instruction regarding the ob- 
jectives of the College are arranged. 

Religious Life: At Oakwood, religion is the natural thing. The 
College Church, the Sabbath School, the Missionary Volunteer So- 
ciety, the Ministerial Seminar, the student literature evangelism 
program, the dormitory worship hours, and the many prayer bands 
afford the students excellent opportunities for the development of 
self-expression, leadership, and initiative. 

Convocations, the Lyceum Course: During the school year dis- 
tinguished guest speakers address the student body at the chapel 
hour as well as conduct Religious Emphasis weeks. The College 
Lyceum Course brings to the campus each year several outstanding 
American artists. In addition to this, many other programs of equal 
eminence are sponsored by the College. 

Social Activities: A wholesome program of social activities is 
planned by the Director of Student Activities in consultation with 
the Coordinating Council of Campus Organizations composed of 



Student Life 37 

faculty and students. Social programs are sponsored during the year 
by clubs, classes, and organizations. The students also enjoy the 
social and cultural life of the faculty members' homes. 

Extracurricular Activities Participation: In order to ensure 
satisfactory scholarship, the extent to which students may partici- 
pate in extracurricular activities is subject to regulation. 

The recreational activities of the College are designed to serve 
the wide variety of leisure-time interests of the students. The Col- 
lege does not engage in off -campus or intercollegiate athletics. 

Intramural Sports: The College sponsors a program of intra- 
mural sports in connection with the physical education activities. 

Health Service: The College Health Service is designed to meet 
the medical needs of students. Nurses are on active duty during the 
day and evening and on call for emergencies at night. The College 
Physician holds regular clinic hours in the Health Office four days 
a week and is available on call. In case of serious illness or accident, 
excellent complete hospital care is readily available. Accident In- 
surance coverage is provided for students each quarter in which 
they are enrolled. 

Parents or guardians of students who are seriously ill will be 
notified immediately. 

Student Employment: In the operation of its plant, the College 
offers a limited amount of work to worthy students, and they are 
expected to give conscientious attention to the work assigned to 
them. The management will assign students to departments where 
work is available. Changes to other departments cannot be made 
merely upon request. When a student is assigned to a department, it 
is expected that he remain there for the entire school year. In some 
cases, exceptions to the foregoing are made by the management. 

Should a student find it necessary to be absent from work, he 
must immediately make arrangements with his work superintend- 
ent. In case of illness, he will also inform the health service. 

Students who must earn a large part of their college expenses 
will not be permitted to carry as much college work as those stu- 
dents who are able to devote all of their time to their studies. This 
is discussed more fully in the section dealing with student finance. 

Student Organizations: Membership in the departmental clubs 
is based on academic attainment in regular college work and is 
considered a distinct honor. The list of student organizations 
follows: 

United Student Movement: The United Student Movement of 
Oakwood College is the major student organization of the College. 
This organization seeks to promote a more perfect relationship 
among all sectors of the College community; to enhance the re- 



38 Oakwood College 

ligious, academic, cultural, and social programs of the College; 
and to emphatically support the aims and objectives of Oakwood 
College. 

Each matriculated, regular student of Oakwood College is a 
member of the United Student Movement. The United Student 
Movement finances its own program through the payment of 
individual membership dues. With the help and approval of 
faculty sponsors, the United Student Movement carries out such 
programs and student activities as the student body may adopt.

GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING SERVICE 

During registration each student is assigned a curriculum ad- 
viser to assist in program planning. Throughout the school year 
the curriculum adviser will be available for advice and guidance on 
academic questions. 

Although curriculum advisers may be consulted on questions 
and problems other than academic ones, students are invited to seek 
counsel from any member of the faculty. Personal problems will 
be given thoughtful consideration. Members of the faculty deem 
it a privilege to discuss with the student great principles, concepts, 



Student Life 39 

and ideas in an atmosphere of informality and friendliness. Stu- 
dents are urged to become personally acquainted with as many 
members of the faculty as possible. 

Students having difficulty resolving personal problems or mak- 
ing important decisions concerning educational or career plans 
should visit the Center for Student Development and Planning. 
Personnel trained in test administration and interpretation, guid- 
ance and counseling are available to give professional assistance. 
Personal information relating to specific students is held in strictest 
confidence by the Center and may not be released except at the 
request of the student (s) involved. 

GOVERNING STANDARDS 

It is the purpose of the College to develop strong men and 
women with high standards of scholarship and the self-discipline 
necessary for Christian leadership. 

The campus government and discipline, therefore, are founded 
upon the principle that character building is the highest object of 
education and that a good name, standing for integrity, honor, and 
godliness, is the objective alike of the student for himself and of the 
College for him. 

Oakwood College is a Seventh-day Adventist college established 
to provide a Christian environment in which students may prepare 
themselves for service at home and in other lands. In order to 
maintain this environment certain general rules of conduct apply. 

Student Handbook: In every community there are laws. It is 
the responsibility of every student to secure from the Office of Stu- 
dent Affairs and to read the rules and regulations governing student 
life at Oakwood College, preferably before registration. Familiarity 
with and acceptance of the requirements set forth in this book will 
make life at Oakwood College more interesting and certainly more 
enjoyable. 

A student's standing in a Christian school is based not alone 
on his scholarship attainment but also upon his general conduct 
and his attitude toward the community in which he lives. As a 
citizen of the college community the student must realize that he 
has been admitted to a privileged group and that he has no right 
to work against that group. Any student who violates the rules of 
the College or whose conduct evidences lack of respect for the 
standards maintained by the College may be asked to withdraw. 

STUDENT CITIZENSHIP 

Each individual coming to Oakwood College for the purpose of 
entering any department of the College is subject to its supervision 
and jurisdiction from the time of arrival in Hunts ville until his 



40 Oakwood College 

connection is terminated by graduation or by any officially ap- 
proved withdrawal. 

The record of each student is reviewed periodically, and his 
continuation in college is based upon his attitudes and general 
conduct, as well as his scholastic attainments. 

Listed among the government policies of the College are 12 
offenses which are considered to be very serious and may be cause 
for dismissal or serious disciplinary action on the first offense. 

Since no student who makes a habit of indulging in any of 
these practices would knowingly be accepted at Oakwood College, 
the first offense may result in dismissal from school. 

A student whose progress or conduct is unsatisfactory or whose 
influence is detrimental may be asked to withdraw at any time. 

Any student dismissed from school withdraws immediately 
from the campus and may be subjected to charges of trespassing 
should he return without permission from the Administration. 

Leave of Absence: Permission for an ordinary leave of absence 
from the campus may be obtained from the appropriate Residence 
Dean. Approval must also be obtained from the work superintend- 
ent. When a leave of absence involves absence from a class, per- 
mission must be obtained from the Dean of Student Affairs. When 
the leave of absence takes a student farther than the city of Hunts- 
ville, it must be approved by the Dean of Student Affairs. Written 
permission from the parent or guardian for travelling must be on 
file for every student requesting a leave of absence. Exceptions to 
this rule is granted only to students who are both of legal age and 
self-supporting. In every case, working students must secure the 
approval of their work superintendent before presenting their re- 
quests to their respective deans. 

Attendance at Religious Services: Oakwood College is emphati- 
cally a Christian college. Attendance at evening worships, chapel, 
Friday evening vespers, Sabbath School, and Sabbath morning 
church service is required. 

Use of Vehicles: Since the ownership and the use of an auto- 
mobile frequently militate against success in college, students are 
not encouraged to bring automobiles with them to the College unless 
absolutely necessary. Freshmen are not permitted to bring automo- 
biles to the College, or to the vicinity, or to operate automobiles 
owned by other individuals. 

All students, whether living in residence halls or in the com- 
munity, who own or operate any type of motor vehicle (car, motor- 
cycle, scooter, etc.) must register it with the Office of Security 
at the time of registration for the fall quarter, or within 24 hours 
of his arrival should he arrive after registration has been concluded 
or within 24 hours of its procurement within any quarter of the 
school year. Owners must have a valid operator's license and must 



Admission Standards 41 

show proof of liability insurance (including medical coverage) at 
the time of registration and whenever requested by traffic enforce- 
ment personnel. 

RESIDENCE HALLS 

All unmarried students are required to live in one of the 
College residence halls and to board in the College Cafeteria unless 
they live with parents or with other close relatives in the City of 
Huntsville. When campus housing is overcrowded, students age 23 
and over may apply to the Administrative Council for permission to 
live in the community. Under special circumstances, students under 
age 23 also may apply to the Administrative Council for permission 
to live off campus in an officially approved home. 

Such applications will be acted on only at the beginning of a 
quarter. Failure to secure official approval to reside in the com- 
munity or to withdraw from a college residence hall when directed 
to do so will invalidate the registration of a student. Students who 
have received approval for off campus living may be called into the 
College residence halls at any time the administration deems neces- 
sary for reasons of discipline or under-utilization of available space 
in the residence halls. 

Dormitory Supervision: Each dormitory is under the direction 
of a Residence Dean. The Residence Deans have general supervision 
of the well-being of the students under their charge. 

APARTMENTS 

The College owns thirty units of one- and two-bedroom apart- 
ments which are available for married students. These apartments 
rent for reasonable amounts. There are also approved apartments 
in the community, furnished and unfurnished, in which married 
students may live. For information write the Business Manager. 

ADMISSION STANDARDS 

The educational facilities of Oakwood College are available 
to young men and women of good moral character who are grad- 
uates of accredited schools and who, in the judgment of the 
Admissions Committee, are able to do college work. 

APPLICATION PROCEDURE FOR ADMISSION 

All correspondence concerning admission to Oakwood College 
should be addressed to the Director of Admissions, Oakwood Col- 
lege, Huntsville, Alabama 35806. Students who wish to enter 
Oakwood College should take the following steps: 

1. Request an application brochure from the Director of Admis- 
sions. 

2. Complete the application blank and return to the Director of 
Admissions with a $5 ($10 after July 1) non-refundable fee. 



42 Oakwood College 

3. Make sure that the following items are sent immediately to the 
Office of Admissions: 

a. Transcript of all work you have completed. 

b. Your recommendation forms. 

c. Your medical and dental forms. 

d. Your test scores (ACT or SAT) 

These documents will become the property of the College. 

4. Upon receipt of the application, transcripts of credits, recom- 
mendations, and test scores, the Director of Admissions will 
notify the applicant of the action taken. 

5. When a student who plans to live on the campus in one of the 
College residence halls receives the notification of his acceptance, 
he should at once mail the room deposit of $50 to the Director 
of Admissions. (See Housing) 

Oakwood College welcomes applications from young people 
regardless of race, religion, or national origin whose prin- 
ciples and interests are in harmony with the ideals and traditions 
of the College as expressed in its objectives and policies. To qualify, 
applicants must give evidence of Christian character, intelligence, 
health, and a desire to pursue the program outlined in this bulletin 
and the student handbook. Although religious affiliation is not 
a requirement for admission, all students are expected to live by 
the policies and standards of the College as a church-related in- 
stitution. Oakwood College reserves the right to deny admission 
to any student who in the judgment of the Committee on Admis- 
sions may not benefit from the total program of the College or 
whose presence or conduct may be detrimental to that program. 

WHEN TO APPLY OR REAPPLY 

New students are urged to submit applications not later than 
the last term of the senior year of high school. Applications sub- 
mitted at the beginning of the senior year will sometimes enable 
the College to suggest ways of strengthening the student's prepara- 
tion. Because of the difficulty sometimes encountered during the 
summer months in obtaining necessary transcripts, test scores, and 
recommendations, more time will be necessary for processing late 
applications. 

Students in residence may submit re-applications without 
charge until the end of the Spring quarter. Thereafter the regular 
application fee of $5 will be required until July 31, after which the 
fee becomes $10. 

What to Bring: Every student who rooms in the school home 
should bring his own bedding — four sheets, four pillowcases, a pil- 
low, two bedspreads, and blankets or comforters — also towels, dres- 
ser scarfs, cover for study table, laundry bag, pictures, and other 
furnishings he may want to make his room pleasant and homelike. 



Admission Standards 43

Handbook, p. 19. 

PREP FOR FRESHMAN STANDING (Standardized Tests, etc.) 
An applicant for admission as a freshman must submit evi- 
dence of graduation or completion of a minimum of eighteen units 
from an approved secondary school and participation in the Ameri- 
can College Testing Program (ACT) or the Scholastic Aptitude

test. If ACT or SAT scores are not available, students may be pro- 
visionally admitted without test scores, but will be required to take 
the ACT during Freshman Orientation. The Nelson Denny test is 
given to all new freshmen for reading placement. Applicants who 
do not meet the requirements for regular admission are given in- 
dividual consideration and may be admitted as special students or 
on academic probation (See section on academic probation, page 
57). To be considered for admission, the student must also have a 
composite average of at least "C" in the total secondary school

foreign language. 

While the College does not recommend specific subjects for 
admission, the following minimum preparation, with quality per- 
formance in evidence is required: 

A minimum of three units of English as a preparation to 
reading, writing, and speaking the English language effec- 
tively and accurately. 

Two or more units of mathematics including algebra — algebra 

and geometry preferred.

geometry. Students wanting to take the above curricula are advised 
to include as much mathematics as possible in the secondary 
program. 

Two units of science — laboratory experience required in at 

least one unit.

two units of one foreign language will be required to complete 



44 Oakwood College 

additional courses in these areas beyond the general education 
requirements for the baccalaureate degrees. (An exception to the 
policy involving foreign language study may be noted in certain 
curricula leading to the Bachelor of Science degree.) 

ADMISSION TO ADVANCED PLACEMENT FOR FRESHMEN 

Oakwood College will consider requests for advanced place- 
ment of freshmen from any secondary school graduate who believes 
that he qualifies for such status. Final decisions on all awards of 
credit, or advanced placement, are made by the Academic Policies 
Committee on the merits of each individual case. Petition should 
be made to the Dean of the College for recommendation to the 
committee. 

To be considered eligible for advanced placement, the student 
should have: 

1. A grade-point average of at least 3.0 on the four-point scale 
in secondary courses other than art, music, physical educa- 
tion, driver training, and vocational courses.

tions of the Educational Testing Service in the areas of the

biology, chemistry, European history, French, German, Spanish,

Such credit is evaluated in terms of degree requirements on 
the same basis as transfer credit. 

Students in high schools who plan to attend Oakwood College 
and who demonstrate proficiency in a field of study by having 
passed one or more of the Advanced Placement examinations will 
be given credit for college courses where proficiency has been 
ascertained. 

Each academic department of the College recognizes the place- 
ment value of these examinations and has designated the specific 
courses which may be credited to the student's record, when a 
student presents evidence of having passed the examination. 

ADMISSION OF TRANSFER STUDENTS 

Students wishing to transfer to Oakwood College from another 
college or university must follow the same application procedure 
as other students. The college from which the student is trans- 
ferring should forward to the Registrar an official transcript and a 
statement of honorable dismissal. Transfer credits may be applied 
toward the requirements for a degree when the student will have 



Admission Standards 45 

satisfactorily completed a minimum of twelve quarter hours in 
residence. A maximum of ninety-six quarter hours may be ac- 
cepted from a junior college. A student transferring from another 
college will be given credit only for work completed with grades of 
"C" or above. Background deficiencies revealed by transcripts and 
entrance examination will be given individual attention. 

Transfer from Unaccredited Colleges. Such students having 
a grade-point average of at least C may be accepted on a proba- 
tionary basis, in which case their previous credit will be validated

12 hours at Oakwood College. 

Credit from unaccredited colleges, including correspondence 
schools, may be accepted on the following conditions: 

1. The credit must be C or above.

scores are achieved on this battery of tests, the applicant may be 
admitted to freshman standing. 

Veterans who are eligible to obtain High School Equivalency 
certificates from a state in which they reside are urged to do so. 

In general, a veteran should secure his Certificate for Educa- 
tion and Training from his regional office before coming to college. 
If the veteran has failed to get his certificate and cannot do so in 
time to get his authorization before the opening date of school, he 
may file his application through the College Counseling Service. 
Records of Educational Achievement while in the Armed Services 
(Form 100) should be submitted to the Records Office for evaluation. 

ADMISSION OF INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS 

Oakwood College is approved by the U.S. Office of Immigration 
for the admission of nonimmigrant students. However, no student 
should leave his country with the intention of enrolling at this 
college until a letter of acceptance and an 1/20 Form have been 
issued to him by the Office of Admissions. To obtain these docu- 
ments each international student must fulfill the following: 



48 Oakwood College 

1. Meet the normal college entrance requirement. 

2. Show evidence of proficiency in the English language. 

3. Submit an official document of financial support. 

4. Submit an advance deposit of 

$1,000.00 (per single student)

Please note also the following immigration regulations: 

A nonimmigrant student applying for admission to the United States for the first 
time after being issued an F-l (student's) visa, will not be admitted unless he intends 
to attend the school specified in that visa. Therefore, if before he departs for the 
United States the student decides to attend some other school, he should communicate 
with the issuing American consular office for the purpose of having such other school 
specified in the visa. Any other nonimmigrant student will not be admitted to the 
United States unless he intends to attend the school specified in the Form 1-20 or Form 
1-94 which he presents to the immigration officer at the port of entry. 

A nonimmigrant student who does not register at the .school specified in his tem- 
porary entry permit (Form 1-94), or whose school attendance is terminated, or who 
takes less than a full course of study, or who accepts unauthorized employment, 
thereby fails to maintain his status and must depart from the United States immedi- 
ately. 

WITHDRAWAL PROCEDURE 

When a student decides to discontinue his course of study, he 
should complete a Change of Program voucher, which may be se- 
cured from the Records Office. Other regulations in this respect are 
listed under the captions ''Change of Program" "Refunds" and 
"Checkout Procedures" In addition, dormitory students should 
leave a Dormitory Departure card, properly completed, with the 
Dean of the home. These cards serve as a basis for issuing credit on 
accounting records. 

Students accepted on the Work Scholarship Plan should make 
arrangements for changes in their original contract with the head 
of the Department and also with the Director of Student Finance. 

ACADEMIC POLICIES

in August. When reference is made to courses offered in even or 
odd-numbered years, it is intended to indicate the year beginning 
in September. The academic year consists of three quarters, each 
of which covers a period of approximately eleven weeks and a 
summer session of six weeks. 

COURSE NUMBERS AND SYMBOLS 

Courses of instruction are classified as lower division and 
upper division. Lower division courses are numbered 100 through 
299. Upper division courses are numbered 300 through 499. 
Courses numbered 1 through 99 are non-credit courses but may 
be required of certain students.

COURSE SCHEDULES 

Each year the College publishes a Schedule of Classes which 
lists the courses offered, the time of meetings, the rooms, and the 
instructors. 

The College reserves the right to cancel any course offered for 
which there is not an enrollment of at least six students, and to 
limit the number of students in a class when limited enrollment 
is advantageous. 

CREDIT 

The unit of credit is the quarter hour. A quarter hour is the 
amount of credit earned for the satisfactory completion of one hour 
a week lecture or recitation or at least two hours a week laboratory 
practice throughout one quarter. 

Hyphenated courses (101-102) indicate that the sequence of 
courses should be taken in order. Credit toward graduation will 
not be allowed for hyphenated courses until the entire sequence is 
completed. 

4-4 indicates that the course carries four quarter hours of 
credit each quarter for two quarters, which, being hyphenated, 
should be taken in sequence. 

4,4 indicates that the course may be taken out of sequence. 

ADMISSION TO THE UPPER DIVISION 

A student entering his third year of college work who lacks 
any of the prescribed courses of the lower division, which are pre- 
liminary to upper division work for a degree, must first register for 
such prescribed courses of the lower division and then complete his 
program from the upper division. 

A student who has completed a two-year curriculum and later 
becomes a candidate for a degree must fulfill all the requirements 



50 Oakwood College 

for that degree, including entrance to upper division, requirements 
of the upper division, residence, and quality points. 

STUDY LOAD 

The normal load is 16 credits per quarter. Sophomores, jun- 
iors, and seniors may register for 18 credits if their cumulative 
grade-point average or previous quarter grade-point average is 3.00 
(B). Only Seniors with a GPA of 2.50 or above are permitted to 
take 18 or more hours. Courses being taken by Home Study Cor- 
respondence or at another school (Co-Op) are included to make up 
your TOTAL STUDY LOAD during any quarter. Class load for 
SUMMER SCHOOL is: 12 hours (full load), 16 hours (maximum 
load), "B" average necessary to take 13-16 hours. 

Students living in college residence halls may not register for 
fewer than 9 quarter hours without permission of the Academic 
Dean. Students are not permitted to add to their load by giving 
or receiving instruction away from the College, or registering for 
correspondence work, without permission of the Academic Policies 
Committee. 

The following study loads will satisfy the authorities indicated. 

1. Immigration Authorities 12 quarter hours 

2. Selective Service 12 " 

3. Veterans 12 

4. H. E. W. 12 

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS 

Students are classified by the Director of Admissions and Rec- 
ords at the beginning of the school year. The student's classifica- 
tion for the year is determined by the amount of credit he has 
earned at the beginning of the college year. A student who may 
meet the hour requirement, but whose cumulative Grade Point 
Average is below 2.00 will be listed in the next lower class until 
his cumulative Grade Point Average is raised to 2.00 or better. 
Student classes are organized early in the fall quarter according 
to the following levels of academic achievement: 

Freshman 0-43 quarter hours 

Sophomore 44 quarter hours 

Junior 92 quarter hours 

Senior 140 quarter hours 

Postgraduate Students: Students who have completed a bacca- 
laureate degree and are registered for work which cannot apply 
toward an advanced degree. 

Special Students: Students who have not completed the en- 
trance requirements and are not eligible to enroll in a degree 
program. 



Academic Policies 51 

REGISTRATION 

For all students, new and returning alike, registration includes 
counseling, selection of courses, and payment of fees. Students are 
expected to register on the registration date as announced in the 
Bulletin. A registration envelope with full information on pro- 
cedures will be issued at the Registrar's Office to the student for- 
mally accepted. 

Students are not officially registered for a course until the 
instructor has received an approved class card. All students, both 
old and new, are expected to register at the beginning of each 
quarter at the time designated by the College. All students en- 
rolled in the College must pre-register for each quarter during the 
periods designated in the College Bulletin. Any student who fails 
to pre-register will be subject to a cash fine of $10.00. 

LATE REGISTRATION 

Permission to register late must be obtained from the Academic 
Dean. Students failing to register during the scheduled registration 
periods will be assessed a late registration fee of ten dollars the first 
day and two dollars for each additional day. Class periods missed 
because of late registration will be counted as absences from the 
class. Ordinarily, no student will be allowed to register after the 
designated registration days have passed. All classwork missed must 
be made up to the teacher's satisfaction. 

Permission to register late should ordinarily be obtained before 
registration day. In any case the Dean must be presented satis- 
factory evidence to indicate that it was not possible for the student 
to register on the designated date. 

CHANGE IN REGISTRATION 

After a student's registration has been completed, he may not 
add a course or drop a course or change a section without the ap- 
proval of the Adviser, the Instructor, the Registrar, and the Dean 
of Academic Affairs. This applies to all courses, including those 
taken on an audit basis. 

A student should be very careful in his registration procedure 
to be sure that he registers for the courses that he needs and that 
he should take. A student may change the program of studies for 
which he has registered upon the approval of the Academic Ad- 
viser, the Registrar, and the Dean of Academic Affairs. A charge of 
five dollars ($5.00) will be made for each such change except when 
made necessary by cancellation of scheduled classes or an officially 
approved change of schedule time which makes it impossible for the 
student to take the course because of a conflict with another course. 

WITHDRAWALS 

Students withdrawing from college or individual courses must 
file an official drop voucher with the Records Office. Failure to do 



52 Oakwood College 

so will result in the recording of unsatisfactory withdrawal (WF) 
on the student's permanent record. During the first six weeks of 
any quarter the student may withdraw from a course and receive a 
W. Withdrawals after this time will result in the recording of a 
WF unless exception is granted by the Academic Dean. With- 
drawals must be approved by the Instructor, the Adviser, the Reg- 
istrar, and the Academic Dean. The deadline for class withdrawal 
for the summer session is listed in the Academic Calendar. With- 
drawals are not permitted during the last two weeks of a quarter. 
Vouchers become effective as of the date on which they are returned 
to the Registrar's Office. 

PRE-EXAMINATION WEEK 

Pre-examination Week is the week that precedes the final quar- 
ter examinations. During this week, no off-campus field trips, major 
examinations or extracurricular activities requiring student partici- 
pation may be scheduled. This week should enable students to de- 
vote full time to the completion of course projects and to prepare for 
final examinations. 

EXAMINATIONS 

Finals. All students must take the final examination in each 
course at the time listed in the official time schedule or no credit will 
be granted for the course. Exceptions may be made only by the Dean 
of the College. Should the examination schedule require a student 
to complete four examinations in one day, arrangements may be 
made with the dean to complete one of the examinations at another 
time. 

SPECIAL EXAMS 

A student who presents satisfactory evidence of having compe- 
tency or exposure in a certain area covered by a required course 
may meet an academic requirement by passing a waiver examina- 
tion, an examination for credit, or the CLEP examination. Each of 
these examinations should be equal in scope and difficulty to a final 
examination in the course. 

Not more than forty-eight (48) hours of the total credit hours 
required for graduation may be earned by the examination for 
credit and/or the CLEP subject examination. The deadline for 
seniors challenging a course by examination is the mid-term of the 
Winter Quarter. 

The various departments concerned will decide what subjects 
are open for examination for credit. The student must obtain a 
score on any such examination which would equate with a "C" 
grade in the course in order to be eligible for credit or waiver. 

A student may not take a more advanced course in a given 
area while waiting for permission from the Academic Policies Com- 
mittee to sit for a lower level course. No credit will be recorded until 



Academic Policies 53 

the student has earned at least twelve (12) hours at Oakwood with 
a minimum GPA of 2.00. 

Grades below "D" may not be changed by these examinations. 
A student may not take a proficiency examination for credit for 
the same course more than once. 

Examination for Waiver. Students who present satisfactory 
evidence of having competence in an area covered by a required 
course may apply to the Academic Policies Committee. After being 
given approval by the Committee and having paid $25.00 to the 
Accounting Office as an examination fee (non-refundable) the 
student will be administered the examination. If he earns a satis- 
factory score on the examination, the required course may be 
waived and he will be allowed to substitute some other course in its 
place. Hour credit toward graduation cannot be earned by this 
examination. 

Examination for Credit. If the student can present satisfactory 
evidence of a background of formal study or competency in any 
area of the curriculum, he may be permitted by the Academic Poli- 
cies Committee to sit for a comprehensive examination covering the 
requirements for any such course taught at Oakwood and receive 
hour credit toward graduation. Upon approval of the Committee, the 
student will pay to the Accounting Office the tuition based on $54.00 
per hour of credit offered by the course. This fee is not refundable. 
The grade earned on the examination will be recorded. 

CLEP — College Level Examination Program. Oakwood Col- 
lege grants the appropriate credit for each subject exam passed in 
this program by the College Entrance Examination Board. The fol- 
lowing statements summarize the program: 

1. Only first-year residence students (new students) — fresh- 
men, sophomores, and juniors — may earn credit by CLEP 
SUBJECT EXAMINATION. Examinations must be taken 
during the first quarter of the school year. 

2. The recommended maximum number of CLEP credits a 
student may apply toward graduation is forty-eight (48) 
quarter hours. 

3. In each major the maximum number of CLEP SUBJECT 
EXAMINATION credits a student may earn is determined 
by the major department. 

4. In the case of the core requirements, the Academic Policies 
Committee will determine which courses can be taken by 
the CLEP EXAMINATION and how much credit a student 
may earn from the basic core requirements without over- 
lapping in the subject area. 

5. The minimum scores listed below must be acquired before 
credit can be granted. 



54 



Oakwood College 



6. Acceptable CLEP scores shall earn corresponding course 
credit, but no letter grade shall be assigned or quality points 
considered. 

7. Once CLEP credit is placed on the transcript, a student may 
not repeat the course for which credit was given by exam- 
ination for a grade. 

8. Incoming students wishing to take the CLEP test before 
entering Oakwood College must have the approval of the 
Office of the Registrar before the test is taken. 

9. All CLEP scores previously obtained at another school are 
subject to review by the Office of Admissions. 

10. A fee that will cover the cost of the examination and its 
administration will be charged each student desiring to take 
the CLEP examination at Oakwood College.

COURSE EXEMPTION 

A student may be granted exemption from certain required 
courses provided he fulfills one or the other of the two following 
requirements: 

1 . Presentation of credit in courses substantially equivalent in 
purpose, scope, context, and credit value to the required 
course from which exemption is requested. 

2. Successful passing of a competence examination adminis- 
tered by the department concerned. 

The granting of exemption does not involve the bestowal of 
credit, neither does it reduce the total number of hours to be 
earned for a degree. Its only effect is to increase the number of 
elective hours which the student may offer as part of his degree 
program. 

GRADES AND REPORTS 

Grade reports are issued to the student and to the parents or 
guardians at the end of each quarter provided the student's account 
is in order. 

GRADING SYSTEM 

Only quarter grades are recorded on the student's permanent 
record in the college. The following system of grading and grade 
point values is used. 

Grade Points 
Grade Per Hour 

A, A— (superior) 4 

B + ,B, B— (above average) 3 

C + ,C, C— (average) 2 

D+,D, D- (below average) 1 

F, FA (failure, failure due to absences) 

I (incomplete) 

W (withdrew) 

WF (withdrew failing) 

AU (audit) 

NC (noncredit) 

GRADE-POINT AVERAGE 

The grade-point average (GPA) for the quarter is computed 
by totaling the grade points earned in all courses attempted and 
dividing by the total hours attempted. Credits for which an F or 
WF are received are included in calculating the grade-point aver- 
age. The symbols WP, AU and NC are disregarded in computing 
the grade-point average. Incompletes are not included in the 
G.P.A. until after the time specified for removal. 



56 Oakwood College 

PASS-OR-FAIL COURSES 

Students may take up to 12 quarter hours, in addition to Choir 
and required P. E. courses, to be applied toward graduation on a 
pass-or-fail basis. This option will be applicable to all courses except 
those in the student's major, minor, cognate courses or those that 
apply toward a teaching credential. Sophomores, juniors, and sen- 
iors having a minimum grade point average of 2.50 may take ad- 
vantage of this option. Not more than one such course per quarter 
should be taken. A grade of "P" will be equivalent to a grade of "C" 
or better; and a grade of "U" will be given in place of a "D" or "F." 
These grades will have no effect on the student's G.P.A. No credit 
will be given for a course if a student receives a "U" grade in it. If 
the student receives a "P," he will receive the same amount of credit 
as if he had taken the course on a regular basis. Teachers should 
report the actual letter grade to the Registrar's Office, where it will 
be recorded on the following basis: A, B, C — Pass or "P"; D, F — 
Unsatisfactory or "U." Deadline for taking a course on this basis 
is one week after the beginning of the quarter. 

DEAN'S LIST 

Students with a minimum grade point average of 3.5, who 
carry a minimum of 15 quarter hours with no grade below a B, 
and no incompletes, are eligible for membership on the dean's list. 

HONOR ROLL 

Students who carry a minimum of 12 hours and who maintain 
a grade point average of 3.00, or above, during a given quarter with 
no grade below a "C" shall be considered HONOR STUDENTS 
for the quarter. 

HONORS CONVOCATION 

To give formal and public recognition for outstanding scho- 
lastic achievement, loyalty to College standards, and exemplary 
citizenship, the College conducts an annual Honors Convocation. 
To be eligible for participation the student must have a cumulative 
grade point average of not less than 3.25 and a minimum of 24 
hours earned at Oakwood College. 

GRADUATION WITH DISTINCTION 

Students are graduated with honors under the following con- 
ditions: 

Honorable Mention. A student must have a grade point aver- 
age of 3.0. 

Cum Laude. A student must have a grade point average of 3.25. 

Magna Cum Laude. A student must have a grade point aver- 
age of 3.50. 

Summa Cum Laude. A student must have a grade point aver- 
age of 3.75, or above. 



Academic Policies 57 

INCOMPLETE WORK 

I — indicates that a student's work is incomplete for the quarter 
because of illness or other unavoidable circumstances. An "I" will 
not be recorded for course work which is below passing, or for the 
inability of the student to submit required work as scheduled be- 
cause of negligence. "I" may be given by the instructor, subject to 
approval by the Dean of the college. Without the Dean's endorse- 
ment the grade "/" may not be accepted by the Registrar. When 
an "I" is received, it may be removed upon completion of the work 
specified by the instructor and the reporting of the final grade to 
the Registrar within the first six weeks of the next quarter. Stu- 
dents whose make-up work is of such a nature that it may require 
additional time, may, with approval of the instructor, request ad- 
vance permission from the Academic Policies Committee for an 
extension of time. The time limit is effective even though the 
student is not enrolled the following quarter. The incomplete is 
permanently changed to an "F" if not removed within the pre- 
scribed time. All incompletes should be removed before a student 
leaves campus on organizational tours (band, choir, etc.) involving 
school time. 

ACADEMIC PROBATION 

New students whose grade point average is less than 2.0 and 
greater than 1.5 are admitted on academic probation and, like all 
students on academic probation, MUST TAKE PART IN "SIP" 
(Scholarship Improvement Program) by reporting weekly to the 
INNER COLLEGE OFFICE to engage in the study program 
planned for them by the Director. All probationary students who 
do not cooperate with and take active part in the INNER COL- 
LEGE program will be dropped for poor scholarship. A student so 
dropped will not be considered for readmission until the beginning 
of the following academic year. 

All students on academic probation who have not attained the 
required minimum grade point average of 2.0 by the end of the 
third quarter may be readmitted to the College at the discretion of 
the Admissions Committee in counsel with the Academic Policies 
Committee. If readmitted, the student must attain a minimum 
grade point average of 2.0 at the end of the sixth quarter. Any 
student who has been in residence at Oakwood for six quarters 
and whose overall grade point average is below 2.0 may expect to 
be dropped. 

Students who have been dropped a second time for poor schol- 
arship may not apply for readmission within one calendar year 
from the date of their dismissal. A student whose grades are ex- 
tremely poor (1.0 or below) may be requested to withdraw from 
the College at any time regardless of the provisions stated above.

A student on probation is denied permission to participate in 
any public event sponsored by the College; he must not represent 
the College in any official capacity or hold office in any student 
organization. 

The maximum load for a student on academic probation is 
fourteen hours. All students on academic probation will be required 
to take remedial courses in appropriate areas of study or participate 
in a program of remediation. 

INNER COLLEGE 

Inner College is an academic support department which exists 
for the purpose of helping students who need assistance in any 
academic endeavor. This is accomplished by peer-tutoring and 
academic advisement under the supervision of a full-time counselor- 
coordinator. The center also maintains a wide variety of media 
materials and individualized study guides. The student (peer) tutors 
are generally upperclassmen recommended by the various depart- 
ments. 

The Center is located on the ground floor of Cunningham Hall 
and is open during the day and evening hours in order to accom- 
modate all students desiring such assistance. 

REPEATED COURSES 

Occasionally students express an interest in repeating a course 
if the earned grade cannot apply toward graduation or for other 
reasons. 

A student may repeat a course in which he has a grade of 
"C" only by permission of the Academic Policies Committee. 

A student who has earned a grade of "D" in a major, minor, 
cognate, or in other required courses may, on the advice of his major 
professor, repeat the course or take another course in the same area, 
if it is recommended. In either case, the professor expresses his 
desire in writing. 

The student who repeats a course is required to register in the 
regular way, repeat all the work of the course, including laboratory 
requirements and other required activities. 

If a student repeats a course, he may receive whatever grade 
he earns, but he may not repeat the course for credit more than 
once. 

Each time a course is taken the student's record will show the 
hours for which he registered and the grade points earned. 

When a student is granted permission to repeat a course in 
which a failing grade has previously been recorded, his GPA will 
be computed on the basis of the final grade earned. However, both 
grades will appear on his transcript. 



Academic Policies 59 

AUDITING COURSES 

Students may audit courses only by permission of the Aca- 
demic Dean and the instructor concerned. 

Those who are interested in such courses should register at the 
time of the regular registration. 

No credit is given for a course audited. 

The tuition charged is one half the regular charge for credit. 

Laboratory courses may not be audited. 

A course started on the auditing basis cannot be changed to a 
credit basis after the first week of the course. 

CORRESPONDENCE 

No student shall take work by correspondence or enroll in 
another institution of higher learning while registered at Oakwood 
College without permission from the Academic Policies Committee. 

CORRESPONDENCE AND EXTENSION WORK 

Oakwood College recognizes and accepts credit for courses 
taken with the Home Study Institute, which is the Extension 
Division of the Associated Colleges of Seventh-day Adventists. 

A maximum of 18 quarter hours (12 semester hours) of corre- 
spondence work or extension work credit may apply toward a 
baccalaureate degree program and twelve hours toward a two-year 
terminal program. 

Ordinarily a student will be permitted to carry correspondence 
or extension work while in residence only if the required course is 
not obtainable at the college. 

It is not recommended that seniors do any correspondence or 
transient work. In cases where this is an absolute necessity, the of- 
ficial transcript for the work completed must be in the Registrar's 
Office before April 15. 

All correspondence or transient work, whether taken while in 
residence or during the summer, must be approved in advance by 
the Academic Policies Committee and Registrar respectively. Ap- 
propriate forms may be obtained from the Registrar's Office. 

Correspondence and transient credit with a "D" grade is un- 
acceptable.. A course taken in residence in which the student 
earned a "D" or an "F" may not be repeated by correspondence. 
No correspondence credit will be entered upon the student's record 
until he has earned a minimum of 16 hours in residence with an 
average of at least "C." 

In no case may more than 17 hours of combined residence, 
correspondence and/or transient work be carried in a quarter with- 
out the approval of the Academic Policies Committee. 



60 Oakwood College 

TRANSCRIPTS 

Each student whose account is paid in full is entitled to a 
transcript of credits. The first transcript will be issued without cost; 
all additional transcripts are issued upon payment of $1.00 per 
transcript. If the student is in arrears in payments of National 
Defense Loans and/or School Loans, the amount in arrears must be 
paid before a transcript will be released. 

ATTENDANCE REGULATIONS 

Regular and prompt attendance at all classes, chapel exercises, 
worships, and work assignments is expected of all students. Lack 
of attendance, therefore, implies lack of co-operation with the re- 
quirements of the College. 

CLASS ABSENCES 

Oakwood College operates under the following principles: 

It is the responsibility of each instructor to interpret the Col- 
lege policies concerning attendance and to make his interpretations 
known to his students at the beginning of each course. Every 
instructor has the right to count class participation including at- 
tendance in calculating the term grade. It is the responsibility of 
the student to keep a record of his absences, to keep himself in- 
formed of the requirements of the instructor, to take all examina- 
tions at the time prescribed by the instructor, and to turn in all 
assignments when they are due. 

Other than the above, the following regulations are in effect: 

Attendance with punctuality is required at all classes and 
laboratory appointments. No class skips are allowed. If for any 
reason the total number of absences is double the number of credit 
hours of the course per quarter, credit may, at the discretion of the 
instructor, be forfeited and a grade of "FA" be recorded. Absences 
are counted from the first official day of classes. Three tardinesses 
are equivalent to one absence. A tardiness of more than ten (10) 
minutes is considered an absence. Absences immediately preceding 
or following a vacation, school picnic, or field day are counted double. 

Authorized leaves of absence from campus do not excuse the 
student from classes or relieve the student of required class work. 
The student, however, must make arrangements with the teacher 
for every anticipated school trip and other authorized leaves at 
least 48 hours before the beginning of such anticipated schedules. 
All make-up work, involving examinations and other class require- 
ments, must be made up within seven (7) days after the absence 
is incurred. 

ASSEMBLY ABSENCES 

All registered students (on and off campus) are required to 
attend chapel. A student is allowed two unexcused absences from 



Academic Policies 61 

Assembly without penalty each quarter. A $5.00 charge will be 
made for each unexcused absence in excess of two. 

Excuses for absences from Assembly must be submitted in 
writing to the Registrar's Office before the very next Assembly. 
Failure to do this will automatically result in an unexcused absence. 

Permanent excuses from Assembly may be granted in the case 
of unavoidable work responsibilities. In order to be eligible for a 
permanent excuse for a quarter, a written request, signed by the 
work supervisor, must be submitted to the Registrar's Office no later 
than two weeks after the beginning of each quarter. 

ATTENDANCE AT RELIGIOUS SERVICES 

Seventh- day Adventists believe that the influence of religious 
services is an important factor in attaining Christian character. 
Therefore, attendance at worship services in the dormitories and at 
all Friday evening, Sabbath School, and church services is required 
of the students. 

ERRORS AND CORRECTIONS 

Grade reports are issued at the close of each quarter. Upon the 
receipt of a grade report, the student should carefully check it for 
correctness as to the courses recorded, credits, and grades. Any 
corrections needed must be taken care of within one week. No 
change will be made in the permanent record after two weeks from 
the issue of the grade report. 

ENGLISH PROFICIENCY EXAMINATIONS 

During the Spring of his Junior year, but no later than the fall 
of the senior year, a student is required to take a proficiency test in 
English. This test is administered as scheduled in the catalog once 
every quarter except Summer. If a student fails to pass the test, he is 
required to enroll for EN 250, a two-hour course in English funda- 
mentals, and to pass this in order to qualify for graduation. To be 
eligible for participation in Senior Presentation, he must have passed 
the test, have taken English Fundamentals, or be currently enrolled 
in it. 

GRADUATE RECORD EXAMINATION 

All graduating seniors are required to take both the aptitude 
and advanced sections of the Graduate Record Examination, except 
majors in Theology, Secretarial Science, Home Economics, Busi- 
ness Education and Business Administration, who will be expected 
to take the aptitude section. The Medical College Admissions Test, 
the Dental Aptitude Test, the Law School Admissions Test, the 
National Teachers' Examination, and the Admission Test for Grad- 
uate Study in Business are accepted as substitutes for the Graduate 
Record Examination.

BACHELOR OF GENERAL STUDIES DEGREE 

This degree program is an alternative to the B.A. and B.S. 
degree programs. It is designed to give the student who so desires 
an opportunity to choose a broad, interdisciplinary program of 
studies. The B.G.S. degree program, with its smaller Core Curricu- 
lum requirements, provides varied opportunities for students to cross 
departmental lines in obtaining the kind of education that would 
best prepare them for future study of hybrid disciplines. 

The following are the requirements of the B.G.S. degree 
program: 

1. A Core Curriculum of 48 QUARTER HOURS 

Behavioral and Social Sciences ~ 12 hours 

One course must be in History 
Humanities 12 hours 

EN 101-102-103 
Natural Sciences -... 12 hours 

One course must be in Mathematics 
Religion „ 12 hours 

RE 101-102 or RE 111 

2. Instead of a major and a minor, the student will pursue concentrations in at 
least three disciplines, with at least 16 upper division hours in each. A con- 
centration in this context is defined as a unified, departmental area of study 
consisting of a minimum of 36 hours but without any specific course or 
cognate requirements. 

3. The satisfactory completion of at least 90 QUARTER HOURS at the junior 
and senior levels in any fields with no grade below a "C". Not more than 
30 of the 90 upper level hours or 60 of the 192 quarter hours would be 
accepted from any one department. 

4. To be admitted to the program, students must have completed the core 
curriculum and have a grade point average of at least 2.25. 

5. To remain in this program, each student is required to have his program of 
study approved by his faculty advisor and the Academic Policies Committee.

PRE-PROFESSIONAL CURRICULA 

AND 

TWO-YEAR COURSES 

Oakwood College offers pre-professional curricula in a number 
of fields. Students planning to enter a particular professional 
school should acquaint themselves with the specific requirements 
of that school. The following curricula will satisfy the entrance 
requirements of many professional schools. 

PRE-ENGINEERING 

This program would provide a means by which our students 
desirous of pursuing careers in engineering will satisfy the require- 
ments for Walla Walla College and will enter the third year at 
Walla Walla with minimum disruption in their academic program. 
We will still require students to take a course in Computer Science 
(EG 198) at UAH during the spring quarter of the second year in 
order to satisfy the computer science requirements for WWC.

PRE-LAW 

Students interested in pre-law should counsel with the Pre-law 
Advisor concerning the entrance requirements of law schools. 

Since a college degree is necessary for admission to most law 
schools, it is recommended that a student elect a major field of con- 
centration not later than the beginning of the second year. Majors 
and minors in the fields of business administration, history, English, 
behavioral science and political science are generally preferred, 
although other majors may be acceptable. Electives in human 
physiology and anatomy and in mathematics are quite helpful. 

The booklet, Law Schools and Bar Admission Requirements, 
gives detailed information concerning a desirable academic back- 
ground for the study of law. Interested students who desire a copy 
of this booklet should write to the following address: 

Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar 
American Bar Association 
1155 East Sixtieth Street 
Chicago, Illinois 60600 

PRE-MEDICAL AND PRE-DENTAL 

Students preparing for medicine should be conversant with the 
requirements of the medical college to which they plan to apply. 
They should be careful to include all required courses in their 
program of study. 

Since a college degree is necessary for admission to most medi- 
cal schools, it is recommended that the student elect a major field of 
specialization not later than the beginning of the second year. In- 
asmuch as training in scientific thinking is an invaluable asset to 
the study of medicine, it is recommended that the student major 
either in biology or chemistry; however, the choice is left to the 
student. 

For recommendation to a medical school, a student should: 

a. Maintain a commendable record of conduct and char- 
acter. 

b. Attain a grade-point average of at least 3.0 in both 
science and non-science courses. 

c. Take the medical aptitude test during the 12 months 
preceding his application. 

d. Complete the basic requirements for the Baccalaureate 
degree. 

e. Include the following science and mathematics courses 
in his program of study:

SECRETARIAL SCIENCE (SO 



The major goal of this department is two-fold: to prepare well- 
qualified teachers of business education for the Seventh-day Ad- 
ventist school system and public secondary schools; to equip young 
men and women with the skills and knowledge necessary for them 
to enter offices as stenographers, secretaries, and general office work-

ers. This two- fold goal is accomplished by requiring the satisfactory 
completion of curricula that incorporate a proper balance in the 
areas of business administration, secretarial skills and knowledge, 
education, and ethics. 

The Department offers one program for the Bachelor of Science 
degree with a major in Business Education. An Associate of Science 
program with emphasis in Secretarial Science is also offered, and 
the Associate of Science degree is conferred upon the student at the 
completion of the two-year secretarial curriculum. A minor in Sec- 
retarial Science is also available. 

Students completing the Business Education program meet the 
requirements of the State of Alabama and are eligible for a Class B 
Secondary Professional Certificate. All seniors are required to take 
the aptitude and advanced sections of the Graduate Records Exam- 
ination. 

All skill courses completed elsewhere must be validated by a 
Departmental Proficiency Examination to determine if the student 
possesses satisfactory competence in the skill areas. Other important 
information regarding skill courses completed elsewhere and De- 
partmental Policies is available and explained to the student upon 
the initial entrance into the Department.

The Department of English seeks to develop effective programs 
for training all students to read with speed and comprehension, to 
speak and write clearly, and to listen and recall correctly. It also 
seeks to enable non-majors as well as majors to perceive the im- 
portance of literature as a source of vital insights into the problems 
and achievements of men — ancient or modern. A major program is 
offered for those intending to pursue graduate study in English, and 
for those preparing to teach on the elementary and secondary levels. 

All entering freshmen are required to take EN 101-102-103 in 
sequence unless their high school grades, ACT and/or other test 
scores show evidence of proficiency in these areas, in which event 
the students may be exempted from EN 101 and possibly EN 102. 
Students are expected to complete EN 101-102-103 by the end of 
the freshman year. 

Any student who receives a grade below "C" in any composi- 
tion course will be required to repeat the course. 

A grade below "C" in any English course may not apply on a

MATHEMATICS (MA) AND PHYSICS (PH) 

The specific objectives of this department are in agreement 
with the general objectives of the college. 

Mathematics may be classified according to two general 
categories, pure mathematics and applied mathematics. Pure 
mathematics is very abstract, and proof (in the sense of a deductive 
system) is its most important concern. On the other hand, applied 
mathematics has arisen out of attempts to solve problems in the 
natural sciences and, in particular, the physical sciences. This 
department proposes to present these two points of view as a com- 
bined and unified whole. 

The department further proposes to develop an appreciation 
by the student of the fact that the One who created and upholds the 
universe also made the integers and gave man the mental power 
and the will to develop the rest of what is called mathematics. 

Those who plan to teach in secondary schools must also minor 
in Education, and meet the requirements for teacher certification. 



Departments of Instruction 131 

Mathematics majors are encouraged to minor in at least one of 
the following subjects: chemistry, physics, or business administra- 
tion. 

French or German must be selected to fulfill the foreign 
language requirement. 

No grade below "C" may apply on a major or minor.

An associate in science degree nursing curriculum is offered 
to selected men and women students. 

The curriculum, approved by the Alabama Board of Nursing, 
is composed of general education courses and nursing courses. The 
program may be completed in seven quarters. Upon completion of 
the program, the student will be awarded an Associate in Science de- 
gree and will be eligible to write the state board test pool examina- 
tions for licensure as a registered nurse. Graduates will be prepared 
to serve in staff nurse positions and provide care that is common, 
recurring and immediate in a variety of settings. 

One class is admitted to the nursing program each year in the 
Fall quarter. Students wishing to take part of their general educa- 
tion courses before taking their nursing courses may do so. The 
general education courses are the regularly constituted courses of 
the college, and are taken with other college students. 

In addition to regular college entrance requirements, prospec- 
tive nursing students must: 

1 . Have credit for all the prerequisite secondary courses listed 
on page 69. 



Departments of Instruction 143 

2. Have an overall GPA above 2.5. 

3. Send to admission office standard scores for ACT or SAT 
tests. 

4. Have a physical examination at the beginning of each 
school year and offer evidence of good physical and mental 
health. 

Students will be notified of acceptance into the Nursing Pro- 
gram. 

Students seeking admission by transfer will be considered ac- 
cording to Oakwood College's policy on the admission of transfer 
students. All students must be in residence for two quarters of the 
program. 

Nursing students must maintain the following standards if 
they are to remain in the program: 

1. Maintain an overall GPA of 2.00. 

2. Attain a grade of "C" in Growth and Development, and in 
each science and nursing course. 

Students must demonstrate safe clinical laboratory perform- 
ance as defined by written criteria available in the Nursing Depart- 
ment Office. Failure in either theoretical or clinical laboratory per- 
formance will require repetition of both parts of the course. 

Whenever a student does not maintain an overall GPA of 2.00 
in the program, he will be dropped from the nursing courses until 
he has demonstrated the ability to maintain a 2.00 average in his 
general education courses. The nursing faculty may then approve 
re-entry into the program. 

Through a planned system of advisement, a program is 
planned to meet individual needs of students. Faculty advisors will 
counsel students on transferable credits and requirements for aca- 
demic mobility. 

The student who plans to progress to a baccalaureate degree 
program in nursing should consult the bulletin of the school of his 
choice. 

A year of college chemistry is usually required.

RELIGION AND 
THEOLOGY 



Professors: Reaves, Richards (Head), 

Rogers, Warren 

Associate Professor: Melancon 

Assistant Professor: Pitt 

Instructors: Butler, Lavender 

Lecturer: Powell 



RELIGION (RE) AND BIBLICAL LANGUAGES (BL) 

The sub-areas of this division are three, namely: (1) RELI- 
GION, (2) THEOLOGY, and (3) BIBLICAL LANGUAGES. 

The RELIGION major follows a tailored course of study to 
prepare for Bible Worker Instructorship, Classroom Teaching (Ele- 
mentary, Secondary, and Higher Education levels), Literature 
Ministry, Medical Ministry, Foreign Missions, and Laymen Leader- 
ship. THEOLOGY is for the major who looks to the Pastoral, Evan- 
gelistic ministries (with further ministerial training at the SDA 
Theological Seminary of Andrews University), and to the Military 
Chaplaincy. BIBLICAL LANGUAGES as an area offers a minor 
which includes Greek and Hebrew. 

Because of the large number of persons preparing for the 
pastoral/evangelistic ministry and the variety of new areas within 
the church for religious services, IT IS STRONGLY RECOM- 
MENDED THAT EVERY STUDENT IN THEOLOGY HAVE 
ALSO A DOUBLE (or SECOND) MAJOR in which case no 
MINOR is required. Such a student also takes a shorter list of 
"COGNATE" classes. 



Departments of Instruction 147 

The entire mosaic of courses in this division is designed to 
develop within the student a deep appreciation for the importance 
of the Bible in determining the true philosophy of life, to encourage 
the application of the teachings of Jesus Christ to the problems of 
our day, and to provide training for students who desire to serve the 
church and humanity. 

A two-year BIBLE WORKER INSTRUCTOR course for which 
the student receives an Associate Degree Diploma is described in 
the present Bulletin on page 139 under the heading ASSOCIATE 
IN ARTS DEGREE IN BIBLE WORKER INSTRUCTORSHIP. 

The person who is studying for the four-year BACHELOR OF 
ARTS Degree must be certain to fulfill the following curriculum 
requirements for graduation: 

1. Courses in the MAJOR and required COGNATES. 

2. Courses in the BASIC REQUIREMENTS or GENERAL 
EDUCATION. 

3. Courses in the MINOR. 

4. No grade below "C" may apply toward the major or minor.

balance is in excess of charges for the quarter and receive 
approval of Student Finance office. 

2. Students withdrawing from classes and who are recipients 
of Federally Insured Loans or National Direct Loans or 
State Insured Loans; the lending agency must be notified 
before a cash refund will be made. 

3. When payment is made by personal check, allow four to 
six weeks before a cash withdrawal can be made. 

4. No cash withdrawals will be given on college sponsored 
discounts or student labor credit. 

STUDENT BANK 

The Business Office offers a deposit banking service for the 
convenience of students. Financial sponsors should provide the 
students with a regular monthly allowance so that personal items 
may be purchased by the student. 

REMITTANCE 

PAYMENT OF REGISTRATION FEES SHOULD BE 
MADE IN THE FORM OF: BANK DRAFTS, MONEY ORDERS, 
CASHIER'S CHECKS, CERTIFIED PERSONAL CHECKS OR 
CASH. MAKE ALL CHECKS PAYABLE TO OAKWOOD COL- 
LEGE. 

Send payments directly to Business Office and indicate the 
name of students to receive credit. A check handling fee of $5.00 
will be charged for checks returned by Bank for insufficient funds, 



156 Oakwood College 

and the guardian will be notified to send a Cashier's Check, Money 
Order, or Bank Draft for payment of registration fees, within seven 
days after notice. 

MARRIED STUDENTS HOUSING 

The College has a limited number of one and two bedroom 
apartments for married students. A stove and refrigerator are pro- 
vided but the student is expected to provide his furnishings and 
pay the monthly utility bills. The charges per month are: 

One-Bedroom Apartment $60.00 

Two-Bedroom Apartment 70.00 

Write the Business Manager for reservations on campus or 
information for community housing. 

HOUSING DEPOSITS 

Before registration, all students living in the College residence 
halls are required to pay a room deposit of $50.00. Married students 
residing in College apartment units are required to pay a deposit 
of $60.00. 

If this is not paid before the day of registration, the deposit 
will be added to the entrance fee. This deposit is held in trust until 
the student vacates his room or apartment, leaves it in good condi- 
tion and turns the keys in. Upon receipt of a satisfactory inspection 
report, the Business Office will issue a check for the deposit to the 
student within three weeks after the close of school. Should the 
room or apartment be left untidy or damaged, the deposit will be 
forfeited. 

In addition, the housing deposit will be regarded as security 
against damage to institutional property throughout the course of 
the school year. The cost of any arrangements necessary to correct 
the misuse or abuse of College property and equipment on the part 
of a student will be charged to that student and the amount will be 
deducted from the housing deposit. Excessive abuse, the correction 
of which requires the use of the entire deposit before the end of the 
school year will necessitate a new cash deposit before the student 
will be permitted to register the following quarter. In cases where 
the abuse is judged to be a chronic characteristic of the student, he 
may be asked to give up his quarters and withdraw from the 
residence hall. This of course will jeopardize the student's continued 
matriculation at the College. 

MUSIC CHARGES 

Students who register for music lessons are expected to con- 
tinue taking lessons throughout the quarter. No refund is made 
if lessons are dropped after the second lesson of any quarter for 



Financial Information 157 

reasons other than prolonged illness or withdrawal from school. 
Students who drop within the first week will be charged the 
single lesson rate of $6.00 per lesson. Students are entitled to 
take, but may not receive a grade for less than a minimum of nine 
lessons. Lessons lost because of the student's irregularity in at- 
tendance may not be made up. 

Students who major or minor in music will be charged the 
regular tuition rates. Students taking music without credit should 
pay the following: 

9 - half hour lessons $50.00 per quarter. 

Band fee per quarter — $10.00

weeks from the date the ID Card is returned to the Student Aid 
and Finance Office. The refund is made to the person initially 
named as responsible for the account. If student is receiving finan- 
cial aid, the surplus is returned to the financial aid account.

dent Aid and Finance Office. 

TITHE 

Students are encouraged to pay tithe on labor credit. Ar- 
rangements may be made with the Accounting Office to have 
charged to their accounts 10 percent of their earnings for tithe. 
These funds will be transferred to the local conference treasurer. 

PROPERTY INSURANCE 

Oakwood College is not responsible for the loss of private 
property by fire, or other causes. It is recommended that all stu- 



Financial Information 159 

dents arrange for proper insurance coverage for their personal 
property. 

SICK AND ACCIDENT INSURANCE 

All students registered at Oakwood College are covered by 
Student Health Insurance. The details of this coverage are con- 
tained in the folder obtainable from the College Health Service. 

STUDENT FINANCIAL AID 

Parents have an obligation to pay for the education of their 
children. They are expected to continue to provide, as well as they 
are able, the basic essentials of life whether the student lives at 
home or on a college campus. 

A student should provide a reasonable part of the total amount 
required to meet college expenses by accepting employment. Be- 
lieving in the inspired words that "systematic labor should consti- 
tute a part of the education of youth" (E. G. White) the college 
provides many on-campus jobs for students. 

The Primary purpose of the Financial Aid Program is to 
provide assistance to students who, without such aid, would be 
unable to attend college. In selecting students to receive financial 
assistance, the college will also place emphasis upon academic 
achievement and character. 

Students accepted for enrollment at Oakwood College may 
apply for Financial Aid through the following programs: 

WORK SCHOLARSHIPS 

The College makes provision for self-assistance for students 
by offering work scholarships. 

Students' work records are filed by the employer showing the 
employer's evaluation of the student's work habits covering his 
attendance, dependability, cooperation, skill and speed. 

Work may be assigned in the service departments, the ad- 
ministrative offices, and in the industries of the College. The in- 
dustries are operated by the College to provide work for the stu- 
dents. These industries do business with customers that require 
daily schedules. They must have a uniform working force. Stu- 
dents assigned to these industries must continue their work sched- 
ules to the end of the term. Any student who drops his work 
schedule without making proper arrangements may be dropped 
from class attendance until such arrangements are made, and his 
account becomes immediately payable in cash. 

To the best of its ability, the College makes an effort to provide 
students with jobs; however, it cannot guarantee work to a student 
even though his application may have been accepted on a plan 
calling for an approximate number of hours of work per week. 
Some students choose class schedules with classes so scattered that 



160 Oakwood College 

a reasonable work program is impossible. Some are physically or 
emotionally unable to work. Others, for various reasons, fail to 
meet work assignments. It is the responsibility of the student to 
render acceptable service to his employer in order to retain a job. 

Work assignments are retained on the basis of scholarship, 
dependability, and conduct. 

Work scholarships are not payable in cash and students are 
advised not to work more than the assigned hours without prior 
approval from the Finance Officer. Should a work scholarship 
credit remain on the account, the money may be transferred to an 
immediate relative's account, within two years; after that time, 
the scholarship will revert to the college's Student Labor Account. 

VETERANS 

Oakwood College is approved by the Veterans' Administration 
as an accredited training institution. Those who qualify for edu- 
cational benefits should contact the nearest Veterans Administra- 
tion Office. A certificate of eligibility will be issued by the Veterans 
Administration. 

LITERATURE EVANGELIST SCHOLARSHIPS 

The College participates in the Seventh-day Adventist Student 
Colporteur Scholarship Program. Information concerning this pro- 
gram may be obtained from the Local Conference Publishing De- 
partment, your minister, or the Coordinator of Literature Industry. 
Students having colporteur scholarships must make regular pay- 
ments on or before the date of registration or have their publishing 
houses send us a list of confirmation on the scholarships. This should 
be done before the day of registration. 

DEFERRED PAYMENT OF EDUCATIONAL COST 

For those parents and students who prefer to pay their educa- 
tional expenses in convenient monthly installments at low interest 
rates, the following plans are offered: Write for application to one 
of the following: 

The Tuition Plan, Inc. 

Concord, New Hampshire 03301 

Pickett and Hatcher Education Fund 
P.O. Box 2128 
Columbus, Georgia 31902 

Write to the Director of Student Finance for further information. 

STATE GUARANTEED LOANS 

The Guaranteed Loan Program has one purpose: to provide 
the means for the student to borrow money for college at low inter- 



Financial Information 161 

est cost, with the Federal Government paying part of the interest 
for qualified students. 

Any student who is enrolled or accepted for enrollment in an 
accredited public or private nonprofit college or university is 
eligible to apply for a loan for his educational expenses. 

HIGH SCHOOL VALEDICTORIAN AND SALUTATORIAN 

This College grants $500 scholarships to high school valedicto- 
rians and $450 to salutatorians. In addition to the above, students 
who are not valedictorians or salutatorians, but who have attained 
a minimum grade point average of 3.50 are eligible to receive a 
$400 scholarship. To receive this award the applicant must send to 
the Registrar's Office of the College a letter from the high school 
principal certifying the appointment. 

FEDERAL AID PROGRAMS 

All applicants applying for assistance under Federal Programs 
should make applications by July 31. Economic Opportunity 
Grants, Basic Opportunity Grants, National Direct Student Loans, 
Nursing Loans, and College Work-Study can be awarded only as 
long as the funds are available. 

A primary requirement for participation in these programs 
will be need. The college has selected the College Scholarship Service 
method of establishing need. The method requires a filing of the 
Parents' Confidential Statement with College Scholarship Service. 

Copies of this form may be obtained from the following places: 
1 . College Scholarship Service, P. O. Box 1 76, Princeton, New Jersey 
08540 2. A high school counselor in your area 3. The Director of 
Student Finance, Oakwood College, Huntsville, Alabama 35806. 

College Scholarship Service will submit to Oakwood College a 
Financial Need Analysis Sheet which will help to determine the 
need of the applicant. 

CONFERENCE MATCHING SCHOLARSHIPS 

The College in cooperation with the Regional Conferences, 
offers seventy-two scholarships of $300.00 each. These are granted 
on the basis of $100.00 from the local Conference, $100.00 from the 
College, and $100.00 from the Church where the student holds 
membership and will be applied during the Winter quarter. 

The church and conference may, if they choose, make as many 
two-way grants as they desire, but the College will match only one 
scholarship for each student, up to an established quota for each 
conference. No three-way scholarship will be matched unless it 
comes through the regional conference involved. 

BASIC OPPORTUNITY GRANTS 

Congress has voted the new Basic Opportunity Grants to new 



162 Oakwood College 

full-time post secondary students. Under the BOG Program, stu- 
dents are entitled to grants up to $1400, minus their family's ex- 
pected contribution to the cost of their education. One may obtain 
applications from his high school, post office, library or post- 
secondary institution. 

ALUMNI MATCHING SCHOLARSHIPS 

The College Alumni Chapter offers four $100 scholarships. 
The Alumni gives $50 and the College matches with $50.

GIFTS AND BEQUESTS 

for 
OAKWOOD COLLEGE 

The philosophy of Oakwood College centers around 
five great objectives — spiritual, intellectual, physical, 
social, and vocational. In order to meet these objectives 
as it renders its many services, the College has been 
blessed with gifts from a few philanthropic friends. 
These funds have augmented the General Conference 
subsidy and student tuition. As its circle of educational 
and vocational activities is widened, however, the spirit 
of liberality needs to be exercised by many more friends 
of the College. 

Some 1 of the immediate needs include the following: 

(1) Buildings and furnishings 

(2) Equipment— science laboratory, vocational, mu- 
sical instruments, and visual aids. 

(3) Library books, periodicals, and furnishings. 
Gifts to Oakwood College may bo in cash or by will 

and may consist of personal properly or real estate. 
Such gills may bo included in the deductible items which 
are allowed by the Internal Revenue Department in cal- 
culation of income lax m an amount up to 50 per cent of 
the donor's adjusted income. 

For further information please correspond with The 
President, Oakwood College, I limtsville, Alabama 55806.
